Today, Secretary Aviation & Chairman Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Board Squadron Leader (Retired) Muhammad Irfan Elahi arrived at Faisalabad International Airport where he reviewed arrangements for airport's new terminal building inauguration ceremony.

The terminal building inauguration is expected to be performed by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on January 20. The new terminal building constructed at a cost of 1.5 billion rupees is already fully operational.

The inauguration ceremony had to be postponed three times in the past due to incomplete work.

The new expanded and upgraded terminal building equipped with boarding bridges has separate areas for international & domestic flight arrivals/departures.

Earlier, the old terminal building had same area for international & domestic flight arrivals/departures that complicated and created hurdles in smooth operations of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Immigration, Customs, Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) and Airports Security Force (ASF) because of international and domestic flight passengers getting mixed in the terminal building.

CAA chief unlikely to attend Faisalabad airport ceremony as fear of protest looms

January 17, 2018


Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Director General Asim Sulaiman will reportedly not attend the ceremony to inaugurate the extended area of Faisalabad International Airport.

Sulaiman, with this decision, plans to avoid reaction of the staff and the officers who have been demanding his resignation.

Earlier, project directors of Peshawar, Quetta, Islamabad, and Faisalabad airports wrote to the CAA aviation adviser, warning that they will not be able to intervene should such a development takes place.

The extended airport is set to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on January 20.

On January 15, officers and staff of the CAA suspended their office activities and staged a protest for many hours at Terminal-1 against the possible arrival of the authority’s chief at its head office.

The protesters wore black arm bands and attempted to block the possible entry of the DG into the authorities headquarters. They even locked the backdoor of the building leading to the runway apart from locking the doors of the parking area.
